A Few Practical Tips
1. Provide yourself with a good translation of the Bible. Some good translations are the New American Standard Bible (NASB), the New King James Version (NKJV), the New Translation by J.N. Darby (JND) and the King James Version (KJV), preferably with the New Scofield word updates. I will be using the NASB, with permission granted by The Lockman Foundation on February 10, 2016 when referencing and quoting Scripture unless I note otherwise.
2. Each part starts with the Bible text, after which the explanation follows. I recommend that you also read this section in your own Bible. All underlined text references in the explanation appear when clicked on the text reference. Check whether the text reference is correct. Text references containing more than 40 verses are not displayed.
3. Self-discipline is important. Read at least one chapter or piece every day. Pray to the Lord for insight. It is His Word. There will have to be a willingness to make a little effort, to do something or leave something to get to know the Bible better.
The whole Bible is a splendid book and it’s my prayer that you’ll get this impression in an increasing way.
I wish you God’s blessing!
